Dr. Soest, what is Trützschler’s latest I4.0 innovation?

Dr. Soest: We have developed intelligent, self-optimizing machines and connect them through digital monitoring systems. The latest examples are cloud-based monitoring solutions which enable customers to literally steer and optimize their spinning mill anytime from anywhere in the world. This combination of complete, intelligent machinery solutions and digital support systems means a big step in automation and ensuring high quality.

Dr. Christof Soest, CTO, Trützschler.

What is the exact benefit for a spinning mill?

Dr. Soest: Customer benefits range from improved productivity and quality to fewer downtimes, machine failures and reduced scrap. One of our monitoring systems, for example, warns operators about potential issues or optimization needs. It also specifies where exactly they occur and advises what needs to be done. There is no need for time-consuming searches for the source of the issue. This saves a lot of time and money. By connecting all machines in a unified data set, we eliminate the information silos that made it difficult to steer production in the past.
